3 Best Public Golf Courses NY

Tee off on three of the best public golf courses in NY this spring

From award-winning golf to pristine recreational courses, Turning Stone Resort Casino is home to some of the best golf courses in Central NY

Tucked away in the lush, gently rolling hills of Central New York you'll find three of the best public golf courses in New York State. Though these jewels are hardly a secret.

Created by award-winning designers Tom Fazio, Robert Trent Jones, Jr. and Rick Smith, walk the same fairways as PGA TOUR Champions, with GPS courts and a world-class clubhouse adding to the VIP experience.

All three courses are open to the public. Which course will be your favorite? Let's take a closer look at each of them.


Kaluhyat recognized as one of the Top 100 Best Casino Golf Courses by Golfweek

One of the three world-class, top-ranked courses in CNY open to the public

Kaluhyat Golf Course at Turning Stone Resort Casino was designed by internationally acclaimed Robert Trent Jones, Jr., a second-generation visionary whose family name is synonymous with golf course architecture. True to his reputation, this course does not disappoint.

Measuring just over 7100 yards, this equally challenging and picturesque course is dotted by six lakes. The name, which is Oneida for "the other side of the sky," is fitting for its spectacular views and dramatic elevation changes of as much as 50 feet.

An award-winning course recognized by Golfweek magazine and favored by shot-makers, Kaluhyat rewards accuracy and strategy as much as length. It is regarded by many as one of the best golf courses in New York. Bring your A-game and enjoy the best of the best.


At Atunyote, PGA Championship and BC Open history still reigns

This Tom Fazio course consistently ranks as one of the top golf courses in NY

There's something thrilling about walking in the footsteps of legends. Tiger Woods, Camilo Villegas, Matt Kuchar, Steve Flesch, Dustin Johnson, some of the greats in the game of golf have played these same holes during the PGA Professional National Championship and BC Open.

Atunyote Golf Course at Turning Stone Resort Casino was designed by visionary architect Tom Fazio, a legend himself, with more awards on Golf Digest's list of America's 100 Greatest Golf Courses and Golfweek's America's Best than any living golf course designer in the world.

Fazio's design philosophy is that "golf courses should reflect the natural beauty of their environments." Named for the Oneida word for eagle, this course soars above the other public golf courses in NY with its wide fairways, gently rolling hills, lakes and surprise series of waterfalls on the back nine.


Wondering where else to play championship golf in CNY?

Shenendoah Golf Course offers conditions normally reserved for TOUR professionals to the public

Designed, constructed and maintained to PGA TOUR Standards at more than 7000 yards, the Shenendoah Golf Course at Turning Stone Resort Casino is ideal for golf enthusiasts looking to play a course with standards typically reserved for TOUR professionals.

Built in a picturesque setting to comply with the stringent Audubon International standards for environmental protection and preservation, this course is as much a joy to see as it is to play.

The award-winning Shenendoah's acclaimed designer, Rick Smith, drew inspiration from the natural landscape to carve out wooded parkland holes, open pastures and beautifully understated low-country holes. The course has played host to the PGA National Club Professional Championship.

Regarded by many golfers as the easiest of Turning Stone's trio of award-winning courses, Shenendoah has been known to humble even the most seasoned of golfers with its challenging holes and diverse habitat.
